The eyes starring back at me told a story of forgiveness and love and a fight for survival.
He wasn’t even 14 hours old when our eyes locked, this little one of mine. Alone in the wee hours of the night at the tender age of 16, I discovered the intoxicating smell of my newborn babe. I cradled the tiny being that some thought I should abort. And I marveled at the new beginning that would become my everyday.
No matter how he came, he was alive, only 14 hours outside of my womb. 6,792 hours spent in the safety of my womb.
Today, the world is a buzz with the latest news of New York State passing a bill allowing third trimester abortion. The rights of the woman trump the rights of the unborn. And the cries of the dead remain silent.
Today, I wish that I was a lawyer. One who could stand before the law makers of our land and bear witness to the value of life! All of life! From the moment of conception! One live egg and one life sperm, under the direction of God Almighty, becoming One live little blessing!
No. Matter. What. All. The. Time.
But instead, I serve and care for the tiny little humans alive and well living in my home.
Although I would love to demand change on the capitol steps, I possess the power to Be. The. Change
The Change that our world is so in desperate need of.
Facebook posts and emails have been swirling about with a demand for change. Petitions signed. And testimonies shared. These are all fantastic steps toward speaking our voice.
You and I don't have government badges or sit on the Supreme Court, but we hold in our hands an even greater influence for change. REAL CHANGE that happens from the inside out!
